My New Friend

Hi Everyone!! We have been enjoying my kid's spring break with some beach camping, smores eating, Legoland playing, sandcastle building and relaxing. We had a great camping trip at a beach campground we've been trying to get reservations at for years. Seriously, years. The best campgrounds fill up quick. But now we are back and i'm trying to get my head out of vacation mode. You know it's been a good vacation when my husband and I start scheming ways to retire in 10 years and live on the beach for the rest of our years. Ha ha!!

I have a Scrapbook Express layout today to share with you.


I used the American Crafts Pebbles Happy Go Lucky collection. I just love the oranges and greens together. This is one of my favorite photos from our trip to Maine last summer. My daughter just fell in love with her baby cousins, she loved holding both of them!

I cut some clouds and hearts on my trusty Cricut...

Had fun with these layered paper flowers and my Martha Stewart butterfly punch...


And of course, could not resist using some baker's twine!!


I am playing catch-up right now on all your blogs, I am so far behind commenting and seeing all your inspiration! I hope to find some time this week to do some serious blog stalking.

Thanks for stopping by!
